Agricultural and Related Industries Committee Report

Mr RAMSEY (Grey) (10:58): by leave—I have spoken on this issue and this report before and I had received advice that I would be given an opportunity to contribute today. I was very keen to do so because quite a few things have changed since the delivery of the report to the par... ... more

Anti Dumping Customs Amendment (Anti-dumping Measures) Bill (No. 1) 2015, Customs Tariff (Anti-Dumping) Amendment Bill 2015

Mr RAMSEY (Grey) (20:25): Australia is undoubtedly open for business. We are open for free and fair trade, but we are not open for unfair trade. That is why we have laws against the dumping of products into our Australian market. I am currently the chair of the House of Represe... ... more

Enhancing Online Safety for Children Bill 2014, Enhancing Online Safety for Children (Consequential Amendments) Bill 2014

Mr RAMSEY (Grey) (17:41): It is often said that the pen is mightier than the sword. Unfortunately, it seems that in this modern world the pen has been retired to the backbench or even out the back door. It constantly amazes me how empowering and disassociating the internet has ... ... more

Higher Education Reform Bill

Mr RAMSEY (Grey) (11:16): I rise to speak on the Higher Education and Research Reform Bill 2014 and the associated amendments.
